Great atmosphere, service, and amazing Mexican fondue (with chorizo) and happy hour specials!

Loved it. The person I went to dinner with also loved her meal. The chocolate dessert (perfect for two people) was to die for! It is our new favorite restaurant.

Very Weak Margaritas – Great food and atmosphere, but I don't think they put any alcohol in their margaritas. $7.50 for a non-alcoholic margarita?

Best Darn Mexican Food! – Bev, Valerie, Monty and I dined tonight at Que Pasa and had a great meal. The chips and salsa and Guac were superb as were our entries. I had chicken enchiladas with rice and pinto beans. Excellent! I met Sarah the co-owner and she was extremely friendly with a wonderful smile. Go! You won't regret the experience.

so we decided to go here based on all the good reviews...MISTAKE.....lets just say it was a waste of time and money. The food was terriable, had way to much pepper in everything. I love mexican food but this was not good.at all and way over priced. The atmosphere is nice. The mango margarita was very tasty and refeashing!!!

Feels like your favorite jeans – We visited Que Pasa Cantina based upon the strength of reviews here on Citysearch… and we we not disappointed. The food is incredible -- Vegetarians and Carnivores alike should prioritize the Corn & Goat Cheese Quesadilla -- and the environment is so warm and cozy, it's the interior design equivalent of slipping into a warm bath or your favorite pair of jeans.

As far as service (top notch), I hope you are lucky enough to be served by Sarah. 'Nuff said. Try it and love it. Que Pasa? I'll see you at the Cantina, that's que pasa. :)

Went here on a whim and I am glad we did! Great atmosphere and good service! The outdoor seating was covered and full of plants and had heaters, would be a fun place to dine even during the winter. I am vegan and there were mutiple options for me as well as my meatasaurus date :) I will be back! I thought it was cute how they had a basket of mini corn dogs on the menu for the kiddies.

Great Mexican Food – I have eaten at Aqui several times over the past year and a half, and I have never once been disappointed with the food, service, or atomosphere. The food is fantastic, portions are phenomenal, and the quality cant be beat. Its always fresh, and tastes like it is made with care. The shrimp enchiladas are like heaven in your mouth, and the marionberry margarita has just the right kick. The service is some of the best in Portland, always friendly and helpful, even on a busy night. When I am there I always feel welcome. If you are looking for a great restaurant for any night of the week (except Sunday), look no further, Aqui is the answer. You wont be sorry.

One of my favorite places – I love the food in this place and cannot imagine those who do not like the food. It is fresh, tasty, consistent . . . just overall excellent. The happy hour street taco is one of my favorites (the veggie one), the tortilla soup, goat cheese quesa,, etc, etc. chips and salsa are excellent! Go with several friends and enjoy! Sometimes, not usually, the service might be less attentive, but over the years, I have usually found it to be excellent.

The margaritas are great. If you like it less sweet tell them you like it on the sour side!

I do wish they would have afternoon hours and Sunday would be great, but understand they may not be able to be open all hours and days.
